Synopsis
Antonio is an Italian working without papers at a Manhattan restaurant and meets Ellen while explaining to her date that carbonara isn't made with garlic. Apu, a naturalized Indian also working at the restaurant, is preparing to meet his arranged bride, Devi. Just as Ellen and Antonio appear to be creating a steady relationship, she drops the bombshell that she's leaving for Paris. Meanwhile, immigration officials are closing in on Antonio, and Apu and Devi are trying to work out an arrangement that will let him be a modern guy while not offending Devi's traditional values.
